No bikes under the wavey bridge at Les Eyzies

Sign to MTB washing point at the Les Eyzies sports ground

No Entry on Mondays - but even then this would be a useful alternative route to the centre of Les Eyzies.

No pedestrians on the road bridge, no horses on the wavey foot bridge - cyclists can go either way, it seems.

Cyclists Dismount sign at the start of this footpath near the Oxford Canal

Cyclists Dismount sign on this footpath near the Oxford Canal

The Cyclists Dismount sign is quite a way down this footpath.

There's a telecoms van beyond the End of Road Works sign, but no reason for this stretch of cycle lane to be closed.

Good practice - but it was hard to see why the cycle lane had to be closed.

The route across Oakington airfield - always closed in theory to most motor vehicles - has finally been made pedestrian/cyclist-only due to construction work. Signs just say 'Road Closed' with no mention of non-motorised access.

The route across Oakington airfield - always closed in theory to most motor vehicles - has finally been made pedestrian/cyclist-only due to construction work. The signage is inconsistent, eg the Cyclists Dismount signs appears in one direct ... [more]

No Cycling into the bus station operations area.

Non-bus gate traffic to U-turn.

'No Entry' and 'Recommended Route for Cycles' at Hustlergate. Which is it? I didn't notice any obvious signage for the NCN66 turn here.

No motorcycles, bicycles or cars through this archway to the Manor House Art Gallery and Museum in Ilkley.

A sign for the cycle parking and lockers at Ilkley station, but probably best to avoid cycling into the bus station!

Information about the whereabouts of the bicycle carriage shown on the train information display at Huddersfield.

No Cycling into Castleford bus station.

No Cycling through the underpass next to Castleford station.

A Cyclists Dismount sign for the footbridge over Jubilee Way.

A bus gate ahead on Bridge Street.

An unusual rectangular sign for a line-segregated footway, stuck in the middle of said footway. The markings ahead go onto the (eastbound) carriageway, while the sign ahead has cycles on the opposite side to the pedestrians compared to this ... [more]

An unusual rectangular sign depicting a line-segregated footway.

No cycling down the stairs, or elsewhere in the privately managed facility.

A Code of Conduct sign on the Leeds & Liverpool Canal.

Information on the Three Rise Locks in Bingley.

Altar Lane is a no through road, except for motorcycles and cycles.

Bridleway through the RSPB's Ouse Fen reserve

Ah, National Cycle Network in Wandsworth, London. How we love you so. You have to be quite strong to wheel a bike up the ramp to this gate and then push through. Lovely stuff from @wandbc Similar in Cambridge, see ... [more]

Adding this simply to show that choosing this route to cycle along would be a very bad idea. The north side is just about cycleable - but the south side is nigh impossible and very difficult even to walk on.

Don't enter the railway line to Accrington here - enter it further northwest! The path here is very narrow and unsuitable for cycling.

The concrete bridleway ends just short of the South West Coast Path

Cornwall Council wanted to close this road to motor vehicles but were forced to repair it - but it's restricted and hardly any cars use it.

Cyclists Dismount leaving the cycle path entering the Rushcliffe Arena Car Park

NCN825 14% Beware of sharp bend below, this caught out a cyclist in 2012 who collided with an oncoming vehicle, see:

Not a real dead end, and the one-way section could easily be two-way for cycling.

These narrow passages in Shrewsbury are known by the term 'shut'. This one has the delightful sign that reads: NOTICE This wall is very old. DO NOT prop bicycles or prams against it.

Emd of Route signs on roads entering the Royal Cornwall Hospital

The End of Route sign applies only to the ramp to the trading estate - and why, anyway?

No right turn to the Royal Cornwall Hospital except local buses and cycles - but the marking on the road surface is buses only, and I don't know how many cyclists would want move across two lanes of motor traffic here.

Clearly marked as a footpath only, who knows why cycles aren't welcome?

End of shared-use section of footway entering the Royal Cornwall Hospital

Time-limited restrictions on cycling in the pedestrian precinct.

The A689 roundabout has shared-use paths around it, connecting with the route alongside the main road itself. A notice implores drivers to 'Pass Cyclists Safely', with at least 1.5m clearance. This road had the fastest drivers I'd encoun ... [more]

A National Cycle Network route wouldn't be complete without a gate.

A warning to motorists to look out for walkers and cyclists when going over the blind summit approaching Drumburgh.

A tiny warning for motorists to slow for the blind summit and look out for walkers and cyclists.

When tidal flooding reaches this sign, the maximum depth further along the road is only one foot, and with marker posts alongside the road, will be considered passable with care. There is also a footpath on top of the embankment to the left ... [more]

If the tidal flooding reaches this sign, there's nearly a metre of water on the road further on, so it can probably be considered impassable.

Warning signs on the road to Bowness.

A 15mph speed limit and an improved road surface on Willow Holme Road.

The start of the contraflow lane on St Barnabas Road is blocked, but I'm sure most cyclists are ignoring the No Right Turns sign.

Predictably, there's no indication that Mill Road might be open for cycling - the usually motor vehicle-obsessed thinking.

Promotion for Swapfiets, a new bike subscription service in Amsterdam

Don't expect too much in terms of "facilities" on this stretch of the national cycle network.

Advice for mountain bikers in German and English on a Zermatt-Täsch shuttle train

Advice for mountain bikers in German and English on a Zermatt-Täsch shuttle train

Strange - bikes are allowed on trains here, so why the No Bikes signs at Täsch station?

No Motor Vehicles (except farm traffic) towards Täsch and Zermatt

No Motor Vehicles on this bridge

Unusual - a No Pedestrians on this road severed by the railway to Zermatt

Residents and farm traffic only - no mention of cycles

Residents and cyclists only - and a view of the Matterhorn.

Llandudno shared use with sign saying Cyclists Dismount. (Taken from a bus.)

Recycle your cycle here

No Cycling on this road up to the Dixence dam (lost in the clouds)

Cyclists Dismount. Why? Ridiculous

I'm confused by this sign - it says beware of lorries pulling out, but seems to show a lorry pulling in. What's needed are signs telling drivers to look out for cyclists, not the other way round.

No Entry except cycle and road cleaning vehicles, Verbier - and e-MTB rental

Cycle contraflow and mountainbike rental, Verbier

One-way system in Verbier, with cycle contraflow

No Cycling sign above Vallorcine - it seems a random location, but it's more or less where the path crosses into France.

Share the space sign above Chamonix

No Motor Vehicles

I had no intention of cycling on this path anyway!
